Card For A Special Couple

Hi everyone!  I was asked to make this card for a special couple, who will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary later this month.  65 years of marriage, what a wonderful achievement.  I did a bit of research and found that blue sapphires signify 65 years of marriage.  So I used a deep blue silk card on white.  I also used the same labels twenty die as the one I've used on previous 210mm square, (8" square), cards.  I love this large label for special cards, as you can get a significant size sentiment inside.  The border trim is from shapeabilities - Parisian Accents. I also attached a few faux sapphires to replicate the real gems, and a vintage pin with faux pearls and sapphire.

Thank you for stopping by - Have a Great Day! xx
